If you are a member of the BSFA (British Science Fiction Association) then you should be aware of their semi-annual magazine, Focus. The latest edition should be arriving through members’ letterboxes around now and contained within you’ll find an article about my journey to publication and the various writing groups I was part of along the way.
If you’re based in the UK and serious about getting into genre publishing then the BSFA provides a number of great resources for writers, not least their Orbit writers group. You can find out more at http://www.bsfa.co.uk
Interview With Fantasy Book Review
Not sure how I missed blogging about this, especially as I really enjoyed answering the questions and think it’s a great interview, but I did this interview with Fantasy Book Review. A nice mix of personal stuff as well as a few story teasers, I think the interview has bits of interest for everyone.
Check it out!
I recently had chance to chat to the good folks over at The Qwillery where I talked about The Four Realms and the work that went into creating the novel. I reveal which characters are the easiest and hardest to write as well as my favourite scene from the novel as well as a bunch of other stuff.

Last week, Stephen Aryan interviewed me for his Head Space podcast, where he talks to various authors about their writing process. It’s a really interesting listen and I hope the quality of interviewee hasn’t taken a sudden nosedive with the inclusion of me. I’m told I made sense, but I’m still not entirely sure. Be sure to check it out (and if I sound awful, try the archives) at http://www.writersheadspace.blogspot.co.uk/ or via iTunes.
The good folks over at My Bookish Ways have an interview up with yours truly where I talk about The Four Realms, as well as some of my influences. I also reveal a famous face that made me go completely fanboy and what I’m currently working on.

So Stefan over at Civilian Reader kindly took the time to interview me about the book. Hopefully I gave some sensible answers that made for an interesting read. Be sure to check it out if you want to find out some details on The Thieving King, you want to hear the Eva Mendez story (surely everyone has heard this one by now), or want to know about the first fantasy story I ever wrote.

I took a few days off from the day job so to use up some of my remaining holiday entitlement and to try and get my Xmas shopping done, but as you can imagine, things have been a little crazy. Yesterday was spent following the madness that is Amazon Sales Rank and willing the book up the various best seller charts so I could take screenshots of it in lists with authors who I admire. Today has been spent getting the book trailer ready (it’s really, really good!) and waiting for the delivery man.
But the highlight for today is this interview with me over at Manga Maniac Cafe. They asked me some really great questions and will be running a fantastic competition and an extract from the book in the coming days so check it out and keep checking back!
The video from my live video interview with the guys from GeoGearHeads is now live. In it we follow up on my GPSTracklog article on GSAK and go into a little more depth about why this software is brilliant for Geocaching. I don’t think I do too bad considering it’s gone 2am in the morning.
Just a quick note to let everyone know that I will be appearing on the GeoGearHeads Google Hangout tonight at 9pm EDT (2am Friday UK time) to talk about Geocaching and specifically using GSAK.
I’m likely to be either falling asleep due to the time or wired from too much caffine, but either way it should be a good show. You can check out previous shows (or catch this one at a later date if you can’t catch it live) at the Cache-A-Manics Network. Hope to see some of you there!
Just to let everyone know that an interview that The Podcache Show did with me back at the Geolympix about my 10,000th find has now gone live as part of their 11th episode.
You can check it out HERE. My interview is about 20 minutes in.
